What We Do

We have a long-established reputation for our memorial work and there are many examples of it in the Croydon area.

We will help you find the memorial you require, apply for the permit and then prepare it for installation. This involves what is called a “mark out” where the letters of the inscription are chalked on to the monument so you can see how it will look.

We always ask you to provide the inscription written out and signed.

Quotes, without obligation, are always produced and we will, where required, offer various costed solutions.

Included in our work carried out over the years is the renovation of the John Ruskin Memorial at St John’s in Shirley, many war memorials.

Cleaning and Maintenance

The modern family unit often has members who live in all parts of the country, even abroad, so maintaining a grave is not always straightforward.

We offer annual maintenance – this is a clean and check of the grave and – depending on the memorial – usually costs around £50.

And while granite and marble may seem hardwearing over time it can succumb to the vagaries of the weather.

Headstone beneath trees are more prone to staining than those in the open and over the course of time the earth of the grave moves – this can lead to a need to level the grave.
